The Premier League Of England Championship Cup Playoffs start on Thursday evening as the closing act to the 2018/2019 season begins with the Western Conference match-up as Liverpool takes on Burnley at Anfield.
“Now that the regular season is over, we can finally get down to the business of winning the Premier League Cup,” stated Spurs head coach Mauricio Pochettino. “We all know that the regular season is all about seeding and we are happy to go into the playoffs being able to host a game in front of our fans.”
With the Western and Eastern Conference seeding coming down to the wire, fans were finally able to start making their plans for the playoffs on Sunday.
“You just know that the FA is going to make Arsenal v Spurs happen again,” stated Gunners fan Paul Hargrove of London. “It’s just like with Portland and Seattle, every single year…. every single year.”
Journalists indicate that they are also looking forward to a potential Liverpool v Manchester United match at Anfield provided the two sides progress, but they caution against getting too excited.
“You never know with United these days,” stated Timothy Chambers of the Manchester Evening Daily Picayune Times. “They could easily lose to Bournemouth. Just look at what happened against Cardiff. It depends entirely on the mentality of the team when they come out. Of course, the playoffs are a different thing entirely.. It will be a fascinating chase to see who truly can become the Premier League of England Cup Champion of England brought to you by Weetabix and Visit Malaysia.”
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as fans call for more consistent start times to the game and rebel against the Thursday night games.
